Peggy was born Sept. 1, 1937 in Weiser, Idaho to the late Jessie Wayne Steele and Louise Aldred Steele. At the age of 3 months she moved with her family to Nampa, Idaho. While there, Peggy’s sister Dorothy was born. After a few years passed, the family moved to Hereford, Texas and six months later to Plainview, Texas. Times were tough following the breakup of her parents where she and her mother and sister returned to Weiser, Idaho where Peggy’s grandparents lived. While there, brother Leon was born. Her mother then met and married Kenneth Grout. In 1951 Peggy and her family moved to Hermiston, Ore. following the birth of brother Richard. Two years later, Peggy and the family once again moved and this time landed in Vale, Ore. In 1954 her youngest brother Stephen made his arrival. The next year, Peggy graduated from high school and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah where she furthered her education and worked in the insurance industry. 1958 was a big year for Peggy when in June she and her family were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. In September of that same year Peggy married and was sealed to her eternal companion Samuel Parley Grigg and they moved to Provo, Utah where Sam attended classes at Brigham Young University.
In 1959 the couple moved to Harper, Ore. where Sam continued the longtime Grigg heritage as a beekeeper. Son Spencer made his arrival in August of that same year. The little family relocated to Bountiful, Utah and about a year later bought a home in Murray, Utah. While they were there, in 1961, twin sons Scott and Shaun joined the family. In 1962 the family moved to Boise, Idaho and then on to Idaho Falls and eventually back to the Boise area. Son Stuart was born in 1965. In 1967 Sam and Peggy moved to Moses Lake, Wash. where Sam continued in beekeeping. Youngest son Stacey completed the family with his arrival in 1970. Peggy worked for the Board of Grant County Commissioners until her retirement some years ago.
Peggy was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she held various leadership positions, mostly working with the women and youth of the Moses Lake First Ward. Peggy and Sam also worked as temple workers at the Columbia River Temple.
Peggy is survived by her five sons and their wives Spencer and Ruth, Scott and Kelly, Shaun and Tammy, Stuart and Jennifer and Stacey and LaNae; her sister Dorothy Whitehead; brother Leon Steele; brother Richard Grout; brother Stephen Grout; 15 grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
